What’s This TV Show About

Airing on the ABC television network, America’s Funniest Home Videos is the channel‘s longest-running primetime entertainment show and is currently hosted by Alfonso Ribeiro. For the series, regular people submit comic clips that capture the funny things that happen when people and animals are at their spontaneous best.

The studio audience decides which clips they like the best, and the winners are awarded cash and other prizes. Previous show hosts have included Tom Bergeron, D.L. Hughley, Richard Kind, John Fugelsang, Daisy Fuentes, and the original host, Bob Saget.

The Weekly Prizes

When the 33rd season debuts on Oct. 2 on ABC, the long-running show will feature a live studio audience for the first time in two seasons. The video show also plans to double the weekly prize money for the new season: first prize winners will earn $20,000, while second place victors are up to $6,000, and third place gets $4,000.

First-place prize winners then move on to the next competition round, where they vie for $100,000. At the end of the season, $100,000 champs will compete for a grand prize vacation package.
